Paris, Olympia Press, (1959).
The rarely seen, extremely scarce True First Edition of the author's second book, a highly sought after high spot of Beat and contemporary literature. Published -- only in paperback, three years prior to any U.S. publication -- in a total edition of a mere five thousand copies by Maurice Girodias for his Paris-based Olympia Press. A serious piece of collectible contemporary literature, this bears the original stamped price of 1,500 francs -- without the common overstamp. A much better than very good copy, priced accordingly..
